But, we made it!!! Its the weekend and now we are focused on getting ready for next week. Ian leaves for home (Korea) on Wednesday, Tracy is doing the MS150 next weekend and Tom is taking Billy to Winnipeg for a taekwondo camp next weekend. Kay and Jimmy get a hall pass and are staying with friends.
A few highlights
Happy 19th!! Holy cow, we were young ... little did we know what was in front of us ... (See previous blog)
Billy's last day of 6th grade - next year he's off to North Jr High!! Tom will be the only one left at Meadowbrook :( Love that place!!
Ian getting ready for graduation (exchange students are considered 'seniors' regardless of the grade they are in because its their last year at Hopkins)> Needless to say, watching YouTube to learn to tie a tie doesnt work. Tom wasnt home and Tracy was helpless. We found someone at school to help him.
The program, they did a great job of getting 492 kids graduated in 1 hour and 25 minutes. There were also 33 flags representing 33 birth countries and the school moved the start time of graduation to accommodate Ramadan and Sovaut. LOVE Hopkins!
Kay went to Valley Fair for the last day of school and came home shot at 10pm. Jimmy slept all day, skipping all field trips and proceeded to announce - am I just going to sleep all summer?!
The kids grades are decent, mostly A's/B's but both Jimmy and Kay got a C in math. Let's just say...there was additional effort that could have been made earlier in the year - good life lesson for both since they have more capability than a C in math.
The kids all thanked their teachers and wished them a good summer. Jimmy, in particular, got a photo with each of his favorite teachers (math, english, band and choir) since he's off to the high school next year. If I can get a copy of them, I'll post them.
Now, we need to survive the next week and then move into the summer schedule of sports sports and sports....
Wish us luck!!!
